speech, charlie, is that mitt romney has identified some of the weakest points in the obama approach to the world. and one of theeak zest that many who have been involved in the revolutions in the arab world wonder where america is. i think that the other side of the speech, on which it was weaker, is that he has not identified terribly well what he would do differently. from those clips you had a few points we can raise. he said that the syrians should be armed but he stopped short of saying that we should arm the syrians. in fact, that hasn't been the position he's taken. he has said that iran should be convinced by america's actions not it words that the u.s. i serious about keeping it from getting a nuclear weapon and he said, importantly, a nuclear weapons capability, that's a difference from president obama. >> rose: right. >> but he never mentioned those many things that president obama has done that i think the iranians are feeling. one of them is the strongest sanction it is u.s. has ever had much stronger than under president bush, and the other, of course, is olympic games

mitt romney sought to capitalize on new momentum. in a major speech, he challenged president obama's handling of a host of trouble spots. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i hope this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> woodruff: with that mitt romney took aim at foreign policy today in a speech at virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. >> wh we look wi iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the nit of september 11. the admistrioninitlly blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently officials have said new information indicates it was a terrorist

. >> reporter: the jobs report took away one of governor romney's signature stump speech about how long the unemployment rate has been above eight percent. >> the reason its come down this year is because more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> tom: today's report actually showed people returned to the labor force in september. it's the first time since last october the unemployment rate fell while more people entered in the workforce. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy and score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> tom: only one more monthly job report remains before election day. and with such high stakes, former general electric c.e.o. jack welch stirred up controversy with this comment on twitter, accusing president obama's re-election campaign of essentially manipulating the report. - quote - unbelievable jobs numbers...these chicago guys will do anything..-end quote. the bureau of labor statistics is where the data comes from each month. it is a non-parti

could have given passionate speeches last night and romney would have been out of the picture for a while but he the let romney almost choreograph the evening and i think it was the strength of romney and weakness of the president to let that happen. >> rose: is this a fair observation, i came to the studio live at 11:00 o'clock having seen the debate, have you watched msnbc and i said no, i haven't and they said, chris and others seem visibly angry at what they are seeing. is that a fair characterization? >> yeah, i think. so i was told afterwards i was too angry, because i guess you get frustrated because i guess it is like, you know, it is always like watching something where you feel if i was there i could make this different, this doesn't seem to be fair the way it is going and it is a sense you just think it isn't working the way it normally should, what you knowbout the facts, every night like you do, dealing with issues like medicare and social security and with great detail and knowing what the guy on each side has been saying the last couple of days and not hearing it clar

at each of those speeches. i find him extremely consistent. he does not move around necesrilyn his positions. i did not see that with governor romney. he was very much against every aspect of the affordable care act at one time and now when he sees how popular the aspects of pre-existing conditions and no cap on benefits, he's suddenly jumping onboard with that. so i thought, saw that as another example of his changing his message to fit what he thinks is his audience. >> reporter: okay. a lot of you before we got together said you wanted to hear specifics during tonight's program. did you hear what you needed to hear on the issue that makes you, as a voter, respond. the thing that you've been most worried about? nancy? >> i'm here for my kids and my parents. but that's how i feel right now and i'm worried about the debt with the economy the way it is and i'm worried for my father who's a veteran. and his care. and i'm worried about the debt for my kids and future grandkids. andhat bothers me, you kn and nothing got answered. when is the money going to stop and let's fix everyone.
